ATLANTA - A homeless man sought by the manager of the Omni Hotel checked in for a free stay at the hotel Friday night.
Manager Scott Stuckey said he's going to have free food, room service and $500 cash waiting for him. Stuckey wanted to thank the man for turning in a stolen wallet earlier this month that he found when going through a trash can.
Atlanta police confirmed the wallet was stolen from a French visitor earlier this month. Stuckey said the homeless man visited several hotels looking for the woman whose name was on the ID in the wallet. He turned it in at the Omni when he learned the woman was staying there.
Wanting to find the man, Stuckey spent several days combing the streets with a picture of him.
"I think if you look at the Thanksgiving holiday and how fortunate all of us are, there's just some people who are going through tough times and obviously we'd love to do something for him," Stuckey said Friday afternoon on a walk through Centennial Park.
